No need to fly to Lisbon or Algarve if you are craving some Portuguese food, just come to Edingen-Neckarhausen!
Mr Bernadino, the owner of Quinta da Luz, presented our group of 31 with 5 different types of appetizers – dips, prawns with garlic, octopus salad, pan-fried liver and deep-fried whitebait. The prawns are some of the best I have had in Germany! For our main course, we got to choose one from five dishes – freshly-grilled sea bass, braised sea bream, grilled Iberico pork shoulder, Irish beef entrecôte, braised lamb shoulder and pan-fried rabbit. The portions were generous – all of us were too full for dessert afterwards!
Everyone enjoyed their meal – fresh seafood cooked to perfection, and hearty country fare washed down beautifully with red wine with an attitude of a seasoned sailor.
Reservations are a must, and be sure to have some time on your hands because everything is freshly-prepared. Mr Bernadino has an extensive list of “vinho” in his cellar – be it “tinto”, “branco”, “rosé”, “verde” or “maduro”, there is sure to be one to complement your meal!
